no more restaurant for dinner
Good signs pointing to Hotel (otherwise it would be difficult to find). Helpful staff. Too many steps for us Americans (older - & overweight) - to the top floor.
Quite, except in wind Very basic.
Perfect location: from your room you overlook the valey wherein Dresden is located. There is no trafic in the street (dead-end road) and you can park your car in front of the hotel, free of charge. The atmosphere of the hotel is very family-like, the decoration is simple and pure, same time very welcoming. The terras is perfect for a glass of wine in the evening, looking over the skyline of Dresden. And the night is dead still - sleep well. nothing to mention
The owner is very nice and helpful (however, he has just sold the hotel and won't work there within a few weeks) ; The breakfast is good value for money (6 eur) ; Dresden town center is an easy 10 mn drive away. Don't go to this hotel for the swimming-pool only. It is pretty small.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Nice and modern room with lovely view. Good (wide!) bed and very quiet situated. Meals were good and moderate priced. No smoking in the bar, staff a bit too quick with serving meals and courses. Towels could be changed a bit more often.
Onwers spoke English. Informative about eating locations. Showed me my room. Bed sheets not long enough. I am tall 6 feet 9 inches. Internet would have been nice in room.
The hotel staff was amazing! They went through the trouble of setting out plastic plates and cups for our kids, without us even asking! They allowed us to up-grade to a bigger and better room at a reduced rate, when our original room was too small. We would gladly stay here again!!! The fancy shower (had multiple shower heads) didn't work. We also had to "accidentally" find the surge protector to switch the jacuzzi bath tub on.
staff eager to assist
Very kind personal and home atmospherte
The marvelous landscapes (Swiss Saxony) from the windows. The delicious breakfast. The "cold" welcome. The "Gaststätte" (restaurant) was closed and the courtyard was dark as we arrived. There was no lights and no sign of anyone. The room was not well decorated.
The restaurant (for dinner - breakfast was a little disappointing). Real windows would have been fine. There was a rather repugnant smell in the room. We couldn't sleep very well because of the spring mattress.
Nicely equiped The waiters in the Restaurant did not speak English
Easy free parking, friendly staff who were keen to use their English
Perfect for a family vacation. One room with kitchenette allowed us to eat in together. Adjacent to a noisy street.
Quiet room. Separate seating area/kitchenette with fridge.
Superb, clean and spacious apartment, decorated tastefully in a minimalist modern style. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value-for-money, comparing well with other hotels and apartments in rural Czech Republic/Eastern Germany. Nothing at all
Very unusual design..bit whacky but full of everything one needs. A very short walk of the town centre and ferry from the station.
after 2 days of travelling the space was a God sent for the children. Very spacious yet private. The restaurant was convenient, offered reasonably priced, good food and was very child friendly. I would recommend the hotel to anyone travelling with the family.
Our hostess was very kind and, although she spoke little English, did her level best to help us with directions, restaurant recommendations etc. The "specialty cake" was delicious.
Very neat, clean and tidy and a good breakfast.
Very good for this money. Exellent, if you travel by car to visit Dresden. It's really 5 minutes drive to the center of the city. Good breakfast. Owners were friendly. It's not very easy to get to the city without a car.
Nice and very clean rooms, tasteful breakfast, family atmosphere.
the food was wonderful and the staff extremely helpful.
This is our second stay at the Baerenfels. It is such a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are large and clean, the restaraunt is very delicious, and the staff is very friendly. A wonderful place to stay!
The Gasthof was fantastic! The room was cozy, clean and very comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would love to visit again.
The position is extraordinary. One has to park on the other side of the Elbe and catch a rope ferry to the hotel - therefore, very quiet. Food excellent. Worth paying the extra for a room facing the Elbe. Reception was not staffed sufficiently.
Staff very discrete and professioal and genuinely committed to their job. Location very good as near cycleways, walks and the town of Rathen. Town picturesque, area similiar and hotelprovided luxury after a days cycling.The pool and sauna were very cean and accessible at all times. Location to Dresden is 20 minutes or so from train. It would be helpful if the menu and the signage in the hotel were written in English. Rathen and the hotel close down at 9 pm or so so dont come lookin nite life as it aint here.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and polite. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the area - we did not use our car once during the whole stay, instead travelling on foot (hiking the trails) or by paddle steamer on the Elber river. The train station is also very close and easy to find, with regular trains to and from Dresden. Overall, an outstanding quality hotel! Highly recommended.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. It has a cosy atmosphere and I would definately stay there again.
hotel is clean and decoration is ok
Excellent service.Rooms very confortable..Good price
Real germanian feeling, fun staff, A bit far away from centres but nice countryside location
The room was nice, big enough, clean and warm. We stayed only for one night and we had everything we needed. Breakfast was also very nice and tasty. Extra bed for third person was not very comfortable. Mattress was too soft and broken inside. There was some reconstruction going on in the hotel so there was a noise till 5:30 in the evening.
The hotel was basic, clean, friendly staff (with only very little english, but they tired), good breakfast and restuarant. Ironing borad and Iron in all rooms and soap cakes.
quality of food and very kind staff
Friendly and helpful employees, enough parking, nice restaurant Rooms in front are noisy
Very good hotel! Perfect breakfast! Very friendly and helpful staff. Not easy to find - only with GPS coordinates.
Nice building with a good breakfast. The beds are very soft. The rooms by the street have a lot of road noise. The restaurant guests sometimes fill the parking spaces.
the room very clean with free parking and wifi access; the breakfast as buffet: salami, cheese, eggs, fruits & sweets = very good
I would like DW or BBC on telly - that's all
The hotel is placed in a very beautiful and quiet zone. The restaurant is also very pleasant.
The staff was great, it is nice and close to the bob track and all were very friendly that I didn't book early enough to get in for the world cup My fault...
Cozy rooms, very friendly stuff at a breakfast time on the 26th and 27th of July The intensive smell of a secretion from the neighbourhood farm
Difficulty checking in through our lack of German and their lack of English. Artex that could cause injury if fallen against. No internet. Not geared up for English tourists.
The food was very good. The toilette was not cleaned after the last person had taken a dump in it. And besides that we had ants all over our room. It was ridiculously loud. You could hear people showering, flushing their toilette and even just peeing in the toilette. Ergo, the walls were very thin.
nice clean room, friendly service, good restaurant
Location and good dinners in the hotel no
The hotel is ideally placed for a visit to the Bastei. There are lots of lovely walks in the vicinity. It is very easy to get to Dresden. There is an S train every 30 minutes and the trip takes 40 minutes.
Very friendly staff, super room with balcony, great breakfast, good bar. Ideal location for hiking, walking (us), visiting Bastei area. Walk to Elbe and ferries. Excellent parking spot. No other English speaking guests, nice change. Didn't have time to check reviews, reserved night before we needed a room.
the location of the hotel they didn't speak english ...
nice Sauna, friendly staff, hiking trails nearby the hotel
The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area. Nice restaurant. It is important that the hotel has parking. not all staff understood English, so your written request, the hotel can be ignored.
Great atmosphere about the hotel. Staff really friendly & helpful. Hotel and facilities spotless & everything in good working order. We only had 1 evening meal in the restaurant. It was probably the best meal of our 2 week holiday. Wished we could have had a longer stay to enjoy the facilities more. Only bad point was that the hotel ran out of the local beer on tap on our last night! Probably my fault as I drank too much of it!!!! Not really a problem as the alternative beer went down just as easily!
Really helpful staff, good car parking and quietness Nothing
Friendly staff, good meal. No internet.
Attentiveness of staff. When we asked in the morning for more pillows for the evening the girl got them immediately.
Nice location Coach party made the place too crowded and swamped the staff at breakfast time.
The price. The shower was equipped with one of those stupid watersavers.
Nice hotel with a friendly staff. Perfect for mountain bikers.
Exceptionally helpful family/owner managers went out of their way to make our conference a success.
Family run comfortable place, very courteous people. The town is economically depressed, but conveniently located between Dresden and Saxony Switzerland
nice new bathroom
